Re: TWC scientific atlanta explorer 4250HDC - Sleep timer?

I forgot about those settings. The power off timer would go off every time it is scheduled, and the sleep timer is one time. Both of them should turn the box off.

Power save mode is always active, so you don't have to remember to go in and set it up, and you don't have to worry about the box turning itself if if you are watching TV later than normal (as long as you change channels or use some other cable box related function on the remote every 4 hours)

It is really just a matter of personal preference.

At the end of the day, the boxes never power off completely, so I tend not to worry about turning them off very often in the first place.
